What Is Sustainability Reporting?
Over the past couple of decades, companies have internalized the practice of reporting their environmental and social performance to both internal and external stakeholders. It’s a practice that is more than just a report of data. It serves as a valuable method to measure progress against goals and builds consumer, investor, and brand confidence in the marketplace. Numerous reporting and disclosure frameworks such as GRI, CDP, and B-Corp have developed in recent history, some of which rank a company based on performance. Recently, investors have started to evaluate companies based on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance through the use of ESG rating agencies to make investment decisions, gauge risk, and vote on board positions.
